Austin players at right are Bill Jahr, Ed Hanson, Clmclt Von Felt and Bill Goblirsch. Collcr avenged two previous losses to the Shamrocks Shamrocks by winning 08-52. (Sunday News Sports photo) RAMBLERS WIN 68-52 Front Line Jells, Cotter Avenges Losses to Pacelli By AUG1E KARCHER Sunday Newt SpOrti Editor A liarrassing Cotter defense, Just tight enough to force Austin Pacelli into making mistakes, and some tremendous scoring up front was the formula the iiamblcrs concocted concocted at St. Stan's Friday nighl. Those ingredients, stirred by Coach John Nctt, made for a delicious delicious dish--a 68-52 triumph over Ihe RJIVOUX Conference leaders from Packerlown. PACELLI CAME Into Winona with nine wins anil only an over- lime loss lo St. Cloud Cathedral to nmr its otherwise perfect record. Two of those decisions were at the expense of Collcr. But the Ramblers jelled Friday night. Larry Jlocljeski and Sam Behind the Eight-Ball By AUGIE KARCHER Sports Editor AArVUVWVWWUUMAMWWVIAArVVVVVVWUVWtJVWWWVWVt OLD-TIMERS looking back on tht history of American Legion Junior baseball can point with pride to the 1931 team Winona fielded, That year the club won Ihe slate championship and went to [he national finals before losing to Milwaukee 1-3. Andy Lipinski is one mnn who won't forget that year. "It was really funny when we played Milwaukee," he says. "Every player on Ihe hvo teams was a Polish boy except one," he recalls. "Milwaukee had a iirsl baseman by the name of Dunn." Now I'm wailing for some Irishman lo claim that that's w!iy Milwaukee won. In those days, the age limit for Legion players was lower than it is now, which speaks well for the caliber of ball played 30 years ago. · · · JOE DIMAGGIO'S recent visil lo the Mayo Clinic in Rochester was the occasion for Ihe Yankee Clipper to get together with Julie \Vcra, Winona product who once played for the New Yorkers and was on third base when Joe broke inlo organized baseball with the San Francisco Francisco Seals in Ihe Coast League. Wcra, now living in Rochester, is no stranger, o( course, lo Winona fans, A former neighbor, Mrs. Harold Nelson, remembers him well and, of course, Julie is Ihe father of Ucv. John Wcra,' assistant pastor at St. Stan's. The oft-told story of DiMaggio's pro debut concerns how Wera, standing near third, shouted to gawky, 17-year-old Joe, handling his first chance at shortstop: "Throw the ball, kid: Throw it. Lean inlo it." Wcra, says DiMaggio, splicer!

The Shamrocks trailed by as many as eight points on two different occasions before Cotter turned it into a rout. Picking up Pacelli in the back- court, the Ramblers caused the Shamrocks to commit no less 19 mechanical errors. Judge himself himself repeatedly stole passes in first half which turned into easy fast-break lay-ins. COTTER ON THE other hand made only five first half errors and only Ihrec in the last IG minutes. It's well lhai the Ramblers were as perfect as that because Pacelli shot at a -18 percent clip for the game, 23 baskets in SO shots. Cotter hit 23 for Cl and percent.
